First of all, I thank all of you for your help. We filled our pool last week for the first time. I used the recommended pool kit and slowly added what the pool calculator said to and the pool company confirmed yesterday that our water is as it should be.
I'm wondering how often I should add chlorine? It seems like I need to almost everyday. We will be gone for two weeks very soon. How do I make this work since no one will be here to look after the pool? What is the lowest amount of chlorine that I can have?
Why can't I use my heater for the first three weeks? I just want to understand the reason for it. I am trying to get my kids swimming lessons to be safe around the pool but the water is freezing.
How do I figure out how fast to run the pump?
I am surprised that every time I ask a question of the pool builder I seem to get a different answer and they tell me things that contradict each other and just don't make sense.
